Democracy and multiparty politics are unique bedfellows. One cannot do without the other. While multipartism can have variations, including being replaced with single party politics, democracy can still survive. How the system is structured ultimately defines and builds democracy is what counts. Nonetheless, the understanding of multipartism – democracy relationship is best analyzed by studying the democratization process as multipartism is roped in. This study focuses on the link between multipartism and democracy in elections. This study was limited to the electioneering process, probing therefore the institutions that are and still are involved in elections in Kenya. The area of concern to the researcher was based on the foundation that multipartism is hinged on progressive development to any country.
